The condo was in a great location with wonderful views of the ocean.
The place was very spacious and the balcony was amazing. It was very private and had a great view. The pool was a great temperature and the hot tub was nice too. Thanks for a great stay!!
Midweek 4 night stay in Kona. Property location is excellent for putting yourself in position to access south & north Kona side of island.
A quick 2 minute drive to Kailua-Kona puts you in the heart of all things Kailua.
Property is clean and amenities are satisfactory ….. it’s all about the “View”. Amazing lanai view of the ocean ….. sat for hours mesmerized by the ocean. 4 nights of spectacular sunsets.
I would stay again. Great value for the$.
This condo was perfect for our family of four. It was very well stocked and clean upon arrival. The condo has plenty of beach equipment, towels (5), chairs, coolers, snorkel masks (4), 2 sets of flippers, and boogie boards.
The bathrooms have starter body wash, shampoo tubes, and lotion, along with full size hand soap dispensers. There is a hair dryer, straightener, and curling iron.
The kitchen has some dry spices along with basic cooking tools, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, and laundry detergent.
It was also nice, as there was a bag of coffee and water bottles as a welcome gift.
The view is spectacular! Two of the mornings, there was a rainbow over the ocean.
We loved being slightly south of the central business area, where it’s more quiet. The property/grounds are well maintained too.
If you are concerned about not having air conditioning, having the windows and glass sliding door open creates a nice cross breeze. There are also ceiling fans and portable fans available to use.
Overall, we would definitely book this unit again if we came back to Kona.
Overall was a good stay no ac fans helped out a lot. Cleanliness is needed. Moving people in and out it’s just not enough time to do some deep cleaning. Would of prefer later checkout.
Overall, our stay was amazing. I love u the sound of the ocean. The place was nice and clean. I wish there was air conditioning
Great place to stay right on the water! Beautiful lookout from the balcony and very convenient location, super close to everything in Kona! Will be back!
Ocean front property delivers the intent of disconnecting and winding down we were looking for. Will consider coming back again!
We had a great time staying at this well equiped property. We really liked the very well stocked kitchen, the bodyboards/beach chairs, etc and the washing machine was really useful as we swam and snorkeled every day.
Our stay was wonderful. Ideal view from the lanai and fully equipped for all our needs. The only negative was that the check-in time is one hour later than other condo's at Sea Village and the check-out time is one hour earlier. Due to changes in flight times and car reservations, this one-hour created a real issue for us. Otherwise, we were extremely satisfied.
Everything was as described, lots of cooking utensils, good quality linens & towels and great to have beach gear available & extra things in the kitchen like a cheese grater and citrus juicer were appreciated. The Hawaiian coffee as a welcome gift was a huge bonus !
Only cons were that this condo really needs a deep clean to get 5 stars for me. Communicated this to owner upon check in, as I had to reclean toilets and kitchen was clearly only quickly surface cleaned, coffee pot was really caked with last guests remaining brew, door knobs on cabinets sticky etc and obvious finger prints and smudges on fridge and light switches. In corners, under furniture and behind doors, windows etc was also pretty filthy.
Pros- location & views!!! Amazing sunsets! Comfortable beds. Felt very safe. Pool was very clean and never crowded, lots of beach chairs.
Like other reviews it was hard to completely cool the condo down without having AC available, so more fans would really help! For light sleepers the master windows face the parking lot where the garbage and recycling units are located so it’s pretty noisy but we travel with a sound fan so it didn’t bother us too much.
Would definitely stay again but next time would request a reclean upon check in if I found it this way again. There’s no good excuse with the hefty cleaning fees charged. A little attention to detail on the cleaning would do this beautiful unit more Justice !
The property is beautifully set ocean front. The waves crash just below the deck. The kitchen is well-equipped. We could not get the TV to work and the property manager responded immediately. Our only negative about this place is that the contractors kept their equipment just outside the bedroom windows and began working very early and were very loud. Also the bedroom windows were difficult yo open and close.
Lovely unit! Spacious, well-equipped and simply the finest view you can wish for. There is no A/C, so can be very warm and was during our visit. Alii Drive is very busy, so be prepared to move along slowly when leaving for the day! We thought there is plenty of room for a larger bed in the master bedroom. Otherwise, go enjoy a wonderful and comfortable vacation!
Nice place on the ocean and close to down town. Need more fans since they're there is no air conditioning.
If you’re looking for a condo to sit on the lanai and watch the sunset but no further. The sunsets were spectacular. On top of that the sound of the waves crashing against the seawall were meditative. Super close to town. Definitely a good find.
Our stay was nice. It was a little warmer than we expected but overall we had a great trip. The balcony was amazing to view the ocean waves and sea activity. We were even fortunate to see a pod of dolphins on the morning of our last day!
Positives: apartment is large with awesome views, quality appliances and apartment stocked with everything you could possibly need. Plenty of parking.
Negatives - no aircon! Listing was accuarate there was no misleading however be aware that the main bedroom gets very little airflow - especially in the evening/early part of the night. The main bedroom is facing the car park. If you open the louvres to let air in you get all of the light from the outside hallway and car park and you can hear everything that is happening outside of the apartment. Everyone outside can also hear everything that is happening in your bedroom.
Beautiful setting with a lanai overlooking the sea. Any closer and we would have felt the spray! Gorgeous sunsets. Nicely equipped with everything we needed.
Having breakfast on the lanai and watching snorkelers or having a cold beverage in the evening watching the spectacular sunsets, this rental has the perfect location. My only request would be to have a couple more fans for those extra warm days when the breeze from the lanai doesn’t quite stir all the way through (which it does beautifully sometimes)
This unit is the closest one of all the condo's to the water. Unit was well stocked and clean. We had a small child above us on the top unit though that woke us up daily at 4:30 am! Overall experience was good though!
The condo is great, best sunsets by far!
Wonderful location, even though we were out and about most of the time enjoying the beauty of Hawaii. The sunsets off of the lanai were spectacular.
This was the second time staying at this property. It is so well situated in Kailua. My wife and I enjoyed the morning walks to the pier and farmers market. The condo is well equipped and had everything we needed. With our kids older we took advantage of the BBQ area for dinners and met so many nice people while cooking at watching the sunset. The daily visit of spinner dolphins was also a treat. We will be back again!
We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it! Thank you!
Only reasons for 4-star overall rating was uncomfortable living room furniture, dishes need replenished (assuming from breakage over time), could use coasters and a HOOD pair of binoculars. That said, these are NOT deal breakers and we would stay here again. In a heartbeat. Tyler was great at communicating and answering questions, dolphins, whales, incredible sunsets and close enough to town to walk.
Generally we loved this condo. Any concerns were dealt with immediately. The only thing was there was no light on the lanai and we enjoy playing games and late dinners on the lanai.
Had an awesome stay. Communication with Tyler was top notch. The condo is just as advertised. Enjoyed watching the whales from the lanai. All the little extras from beach chairs to snorkeling gear, a beach cooler, beach towels etc.... were sure appreciated. Will definitely stay here again when we return to the Big Island!!
no complaints :)
This is a second story condo within feet of the rocky shoreline. There’s a double break wall in front of the condo. We were entertained and occasionally showered by the huge waves hitting the break wall and occasionally shooting up to the top of our lanai. The noise of the surf was quite loud, but we really couldn’t shut the lanai door because without air conditioning the condo got hot and stuffy. Wouldn’t recommend for light sleepers this time of year.
Condo itself was certainly adequate, although master bed is small. Kitchen well equipped, but clearly primarily a rental (no spices, condiments, extras that owner/users often have available). TV & Wi-Fi we’re reliable. Short drive to beaches, snorkeling, restaurants, grocery.
View from lanai is spectacular!
Beautiful view, perfect location, responsive and informative owner, excellent amenities although snorkel gear would have been a great addition. Overall a fabulous stay for my whole family. We had a great time! Thank you, Tyler!
Great location and beautiful view! Very clean. The necessities were all there but probably because of covid no oil, spices, etc to cook with were in the cabinets like we normally would expect. Just an FYI. We definitely would stay here again!
First condo I have rented. Great experience. The view is AMAZING. Loved being able to walk right to the coffee shop at the front of the complex.
We had a great time! The owner provided beach chairs, coolers and beach equipment that made beach days so easy!
We enjoyed our stay here in the Sea Village!! The location is perfect, the pool was a nice relaxing end of day activity for the kids, and the coffee shop here is amazing! We will definitely be returning!!
We love the Big Island and Kona area. First time staying at Sea Village. Nice property and good location. Condo had wonderful view. Unit could have been MUCH cleaner, but I cleaned and adjusted. There is a walkway outside bedroom windows that was noisey all hours of the day, so that was a bit annoying.
The condo was great for our stay on the Big Island. The views from the lanai were amazing and we could even see fish swimming in the water below. We were able to watch the 4th of July fireworks from the lanai as well! It was a great location in Kailua-Kona - close to snorkeling and many great restaurants. There is a coffee shop on the corner that must be amazing based on the line every morning! Never tried it as the host provided some great coffee for us! Condo had all we needed including snorkel and beach gear! Great stay!
You are ocean front looking at the bay from the kitchen, living area and balcony. When there is a breeze it will flow throw the condo. There is no A/C. Can’t beat the location.
Really enjoyed the location, the property and most of all the view.
Especially see the stars at night - astonishing!
Property also really well appointed and clean. Thank you!
I grew up vacationing in Kona, and this was a perfect location. The tile floors and everything was perfect for our active family. It’s well appointed and has nice amenities, it’s not super fancy but that’s what makes it great!
Very clean, simple condo in a convenient location that accommodates 4 adults quite comfortably. Reasonably stocked with ocean gear (towels, boogie boards, some snorkel/masks, hard and soft coolers). A little light on condiments (historically we found VRBOs to have more condiments left by previous occupants _but COVID may have affected the stash), so plan accordingly when you grocery shop. Otherwise - all the amenities you need to enjoy your stay. Plan some 'downtime' enjoying appetizers, wine and dinner on the balcony as the sun sets.
Wow! We loved our stay at this condo. It had everything we needed and the view was amazing! The condo was clean and comfortable. Thank you so much. We will be back!
